Beyond the Facade // Enter 10 Murray Street

This is my latest edit I have just added to my 10 Murray Street project. Most people probably remember 10 Murray Street from the exterior views.  But the views as you walked off the street and into 10 Murray Street was just as fascinating in terms of period design details.  There are so many period 1960s design elements in this one scene - lavish use of concrete, aluminium, carpet and walls lined with terrazzo.  I loved the way the staircase material finish continued on into the lobby area.  The entire entry was like a fortress, like standing behind and underneath a roaring waterfall - an immense sense of the bold grandeur comes over me as I looked upwards and outwards, yet being in this cocooned darkness was like a refuge away from the windy exposed street...and this is all before you even enter inside proper! The 10 Murray Street project has been an immense undertaking logistically, emotionally and photographically. I have amassed a large library of photographs I have still to process, documenting the exterior and interior spaces for over the past decade. Join me on my journey of a Modernist landmark.
